The Inspirations Studio is a youth project working with 13-19 year olds in Peterborough. We provide a safe space in the city centre for young people to be creative and imaginative or just simply relax and get to know youth workers. The project works with young people to create opportunities to develop new skills, build confidence and aspiration, to volunteer & to help others. Helping young people to transform their local communities for the better.
The project engages with young people to create a better environment for all in Peterborough City Centre. Our work encourages and develops young volunteers to make Peterborough better. Through our drop-ins and creative workshops we contribute to reducing anti-social behaviour and support young people to reinforce a positive image of themselves. As part of our work we are developing support for struggling and disadvantaged young people who use the city centre. This includes mentoring provision.
Since the project began we have reached 100s of young people providing a safe space. We have encouraged them to get involved in creative workshops designed to help them learn a new skill We also have a growing group of young people volunteering across the city. Our most visiable impact has been helping young people to transform local underpasses using public art they design, replacing the graffiti. They always recieve positive feedback from passing people, adding to their sense of achievement.
